We think this is the silliest advancement in sex technology. A life size, fully operational sex bot that talks. Now we understand why there is a really big market for life size sex ken and barbie dolls in this increasingly virtual world of ours - but why would anyone want one to talk?
She's a companion. She has a personality. She hears you. She listens to you. She speaks. She feels your touch. She goes to sleep. We are trying to replicate a personality of a person."

Roxxxy stands 170cm (five feet, seven inches) tall, weighs 54.43kg (120lbs), "has a full C cup and is ready for action," according to Mr Hines, who was an artificial intelligence engineer at Bell Labs before starting TrueCompanion.

The anatomically-correct robot has an articulated skeleton that can move like a person but can't walk or independently move its limbs.

We especially like the fact the inventor made her able to snore- the bastard has a hell of a sense of humour....

Is this a male thing? Do males really want sex dolls that talk? Maybe they do but we are pretty sure that if any of our female friends needed ( or wanted ) a sex doll, then they wouldn't want it to utter a single word... We might want pecs that jiggle a bit and very sensitive fingers -the ability to give you feet a rub would be good and the ability to get out of bed first thing in the morning and make a cuppa and a slice of toast would be mandatory- but a voice? Nah!

So just to prove our theory and in the interests of increasing knowledge on this very important social phenomenon - we are running a survey on the right of the blog.

Q - If you had a sex bot would you want it to talk?

It's looking like an ideal man to be honest. Can we have a male one that is programmed to do housework?

HaHa love this.

Reminds me when they used to call knock-shops in Auckland "Rap Palours" The word "Rap" meaning to engage in conversation etc.

Did they drop the name after complaints from the odd gentleman that ventured into these boudoirs expecting verbal intercourse?

Or maybe there was disappointment when it was discovered that the bemused Asian hostess could not speak a word of english?

Or maybe not...
